    Does it always light up? Could be interfearence from somewhere as mine used to play up in tesco's as it was close to a mobile phone mast.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    What kind of fob is it? If it works from time to time you might have to clean the battery contacts.

    yes clean the contacts with contact cleaner from maplin or soemthing similar - worth the money as it can be used fror all manner of electrical surface cleaning

    then at a guess - try another battery

    sometimes they are faulty from the off.

    other than that

    you can reprogramme the fob

    I think it involves accessing the door with your key. I'll try to find the link later today

    unless someone else beats me to it......

    cheers

    If the other fob works properly, then you know the problem is with the fob and not the car. If your other fob also works in the same intermittant way, then the problem way be with you car and not your fob.
